British Costume from Earliest Times to 1820 (Dover Pictorial Archives)

British Costume from Earliest Times to 1820 (Dover Pictorial Archives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hard-to-find classic drew on primary sources — actual costumes, illuminated manuscripts, effigies, etc. — to provide authentic detailed coverage of what people wore in Britain from the early Saxon period (ca. A.D. 460) to the reign of King George III (1820). Clothing of commoners, royalty, and ecclesiastics. Indispensable for fashion historians.
